Tuesday Lanes

 Tom the backroads traveller hosts this weekly meme.

Click here for a history of Toronto lane naming and a list of other lanes. That post is a work in progress, and gets updated frequently.

Coltsfoot Lane - after the wildflower, a Eudioct in the Asteraceae/Aster family, found at roadsides, cultivated land, bluffs or erosion banks such as the lanes of Cabbagetown or the erosion banks of the Rosedale ravine.

Goatsbeard Lane - after the biennial wildflower that commonly grows by dry roadsides such as those of the Cabbagetown lanes. Goat’s-Beard is a Eudicot of the Asteraceae/Aster family.


  1. ...Goat’s-Beard I know, Coltsfoot I will have to look up. I see that people love stickers on sign in Toronto too. Thanks Jackie for joining the party, take care.

  2. Thanks for sharing at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2021/06/arty-sea-world.html

  3. Good to include names beyond people.

  4. Lovely naming lanes after wildflowers. The goats Beard here is a perennial, so must be a different wildflower by the same common name.

  5. I'm sure glad you explained the names as I would never have been able to guess!
